Frederick County wants developers, not county employees, to handle the contracts, inspections and supervision of new water and sewer construction projects for 18 months under a proposed new pilot program. The proposal is part of the Frederick Board of County Commissioners’ efforts to make it easier for developers to do work in Frederick County, said Kevin L. Demosky, director of the county’s division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management Division. “It’s the desire by the board to look at different aspects of the ‘business friendly’ approach,” he said.
